Margaret Leng Tan performs Toby Twining's Nightmare Rag at Other Minds 5, 1999


Published March 27, 1999


Margaret Leng Tan performs the west coast premiere of Toby Twining's Nightmare Rag (1989), arranged by the composer for Margaret Leng Tan in 1995) at the Other Minds Music Festival in 1999 at the Cowell Theater in San Francisco.

Margaret Leng Tan, toy piano & piano. Ms. Tan plays the Schoenhut toy piano.

According to Tan:
Composer/vocalist Toby Twining's music and voice can be heard on his CD Shaman, featuring his vocal quartet, Toby Twining Music. Twining had made an earlier vocal arrangement of Satie Blues for his group. The version for toy piano and piano is probably the first-ever composition featuring this unique blend of instruments. Nightmare Rag is a delightfully hilarious slice of modern-day Americana laced with sly allusions to The Addams Family.
- Margaret Leng Tan
